training nearly complete
Nahum's training is nearly complete with about a 95% success rate for receiving the desired outcome.
This is how it works: Nahum plops down on the floor, stretches out and effortlessly rolls over. Then he waits, upside-down, for his tummy to be rubbed. The expectation is the human will drop whatever they are doing and attend to his tummy rub needs. If response time is unacceptably slow, he makes one of his odd meow sounds to alert the human to the problem.
Most often, Nahum gets what he wants, thus he has me trained well.
